I recently spent a weekend in Whistler exploring what the village, valleys, and peaks have to offer at the beginning of the winter season. It’s the right time of year to travel up the Sea to Sky as roads are clear but the dazzling coastal scenery is washed in white.

To help you beat the rush and hit the slopes as soon as possible I have been given a Whistler prize pack that includes:

1 night stay at Lodging Ovations in Creekside
2 full-day lift passes for Whistler Blackcomb
2 seats on the Snowbus up to Whistler Creekside and back

About Whistler Blackcomb:
Barely needing an introduction, this world-class destination is considered a global leader when it comes to terrain and even Après nightlife. Located 125km North of Vancouver it’s also the largest ski resort in North America with millions of visitors each year. Follow WhistlerBlckcmb on Twitter for updates.

About Lodging Ovations:
Lodging Ovations presents a collection of luxury properties, located in Whistler’s Creekside Village. Legends, the First Tracks Lodge, and Evolution each have full suites with contemporary designs. Follow on Twitter @LodgingOvations.

About Snowbus:
With departures from locations in Vancouver and Burnaby it’s probably the easiest way to make the trip to Whistler this season. You won’t have to worry about gas or parking and Snowbus offers great package deals including lift tickets throughout the season. Follow on Twitter @Snowbus.

    2. Humphrey says:

      It’s been a very tough year for me… breaking up a 6 years relationship and having to move out from the place we’ve bought together. Winning this Whistler trip will give me a chance to take a break from the city.

    3. Maggie says:

      Oh my goodness! I would LOVE to get to go up to Whistler – why?

      Well, last season I did not get to snowboard nearly as much as I wanted to, given all the craziness of the Olympics and all and it’s been quite a while since I’ve been up to Whistler (which is a shame seeing as I live so close!) Secondly…school is almost done and winning this would be the cherry on top of a crazy semester!

    4. Tiffany says:

      I would love to go to Whistler. I’ve never been there, and it looks fantastic. Plus, my husband and I could really use the break – he’s in the navy, and it seems like he’s hardly ever home, so I’m a single mom more often than not!

      I would love to go to Whistler because I love the snow.

      Who doesn’t want to go to Whistler!?

    22. Iris says:

    23. Lily says:

      Mini getaway from the city, try snowboarding, go tabogganning, walk around the Village, and to relax and enjoy the winter weather!

    24. Gideon says:

      You are so generous! I think I’d take a family member who would not be able to afford a luxury accommodation like this.

    25. Shelley says:

      Being a single parent, I was never able to afford a great 13th birthday present for my son when he turned 13 in February and I wanted to do something special for him. This would be a great belated gift to him from me. Whistler is his favorite place on earth!

    33. Candice C says:

      I’ve been to whistler a few times, but its been quite a few years since i have been up there – in fact I’ve never actually been up there for the ski season! Totally crazy eh! Whistler is amazing in the summer – but i cant say the same for Winter, since i’ve never seen it white! PLUS – i’d get to see my friend from Australia who is working/living there this season, and I haven’t seen her in a few years! So double reasons I want to go!

    34. Marina says:

      I’ve only ever been to Whistler for the odd day trip. An over night excursion would be wonderful!!

      That trip looks amazing! My sister would love this!

    55. Stephen says:

We’ve sabered champagne at Bearfoot Bistro, got to know wine director David Foran at the Four Seasons Sidecut restaurant and sommelier Ben at the Chateau Whistler wine room. We’ve stayed at the Delta Village Suites, Club Intrawest and many other spots. What’s not to love about Whistler? We even met @WhistlerFoodie from Twitter. What a hit!

    140. Ling says:

      Why would I like to go to Whistler? I think the question is why wouldn’t I want to go to Whistler. I am from Australia and have never snowboarded or skied before and I hear Whistler is the best place in the world for that!

    165. Julie Schappert says:

      My husband who does so much for our family deserves this mini vacation and I’d love to be able to give it to him as thanks for taking such great care of our family.

    167. Lisen Bassett says:

      Here’s why you should pick me to go to Whistler for a weekend: I’ve been skiing since I was 2 years old and now, 16 years later, I am still attacking the snow as fiercely as I did on my first day. Skiing is therefore a huge part of my life and I look forward to my weekends in Mont Tremblant, Quebec every day of the week. But there is a problem. Though I live to ski and Tremblant is the best mountains within a reasonable distance, that snow where I come from is sparse and we ski on icy slopes for the second half of the day. I’ve heard to much about the powder out west but I’ve never tasted it. Having the opportunity to get face-fulls of powder would make me inexpressibly happy so, please take me off my barely snow-covered slopes and onto Whistler’s pow-filled-dreamy ones. thanks πŸ™‚

    168. Patrick M. says:

      Wow. Best. prize. Ever!

    169. Christina A says:

      I have a fantasy life that involves living in/near Whistler and skiing everyday… Maybe when I retire in 30 years :}

Would absolutely LOVE to go back and experience the real thing. It’s beautiful up there.

      reasons why you should pick me:

      1. i’ve been on 12 job interviews this year, all unsucessful.

      3. i’m 28, been dating my boyfriend for just under 5 years and there’s no ring in sight.
      4. i haven’t been out of ontario in 6 years!

      Whistler during the winter is by far the best time to go. The snow and the lights and just the atmosphere is something everyone should expeerince.

    259. Ashley V says:

      I’ve only had the opportunity to go to Whistler once, but I was not able to go snowboarding, which is a passion of mine. I love being on the hill, shredding snow as fast as I can go.
